Though I did spend some time trying to get it to work with a 4-year-old ThinkPad with no success. I never could get it to correctly display 1920x1080...but that was mainly due to an underpowered/outdated video card. If you have a fairly recent HTPC, it shouldn't be a problem.
Thanks for the response.
My unit arrived yesterday and I set it up late so didn't post before going to sleep. I'm running an ATi 3450 video card and the device resolution was detected automatically as well. However, I do have 2 problems:
1. When running w/o HDMI bypass enabled, very fine text (file/edit/view/etc menus) there's a little bit of moire of the black text; something I didn't see when I connected directly to my TV (Philips 42PFL7432D).
2. When HDMI Bypass is enabled, the output is useless...the hue is off or something, but I have a black desktop which is entirely hot pink, with all other colors shifted in some odd manner as well. So I'm currently running it w/o HDMI bypass but no video effects turned on.
I haven't updated drivers yet so I will try that later today to see if it resolves the problem.
My PS3 on the other hand has had no video issues; HDMI bypass on/off results in the proper video output so I'm very happy with that. In terms of audio issue, though; the sound itself is fine, but on some games, sound drops out for a few moments as it (I guess?) tries to synch; usually happens after a transition from say...start screen or setup screen to the actual game. It's bit irksome considering my Samsung HT-AS720 didn't have any issues at all. It might be partially due to bad coding on the game dev side of things, but I don't know.
In terms of sound quality, it's a huge improvement from my Samsung, and also compared to a friend's Yamaha RX-V661 and 861. It may be partially due to the fact that I'm running Polk RTi8's which are inherently bright, but even after tinkering around with the 3 receivers and the RTi's, the speakers remained a bit too bright for my tastes. The 2600 seems to have rounded off the edges to give a far more listenable high frequency range.
Aside from the pesky bugs, I'm very happy with this unit thus far
